Malawi Telecom to spend US$25 million on fibre project


Malawi Telecom says it plans to spend about $25 million (about K3.5b) in the next two years on the optical fibre project to improve its services. It has given the contract to Chinese vendor Huawei to construct the fibre that would connect Mulanje, Blantyre, Lilongwe, Mzuzu and Karonga.

The plan is partly aimed at improving network quality and speeds but is also aimed at curbing vandalism. The company believes that the fibre will help increase its customer base.
